If rappers were surfers, beats would be the waves they ride and flow on. Beats consist of chopping & looping sounds, layered drum breaks, etc, created via synths, drum machines, samplers, sequencers, turntables and more used in conjunction with a variety of software. Music producers like the eminently talented Brett Fullerton craft these beats.
Based out of Detroit, Brett Fullerton, is a well-known local music producer who specializes in recording, mixing & mastering and instrumentals. Earlier this year he dropped the popular 14-track album ‘Welcome to My Nightmare’.
“I had 200 vinyl albums and they sold out in two days,” says Brett, who also has a solo project coming out in October 2015 and another 7-track album dropping January 2016 under Faceless Entertainment.
“My sound is hip-hop based, especially the drums, but more experimental, more electronic sounding. I started getting into music 2002-2003 when I joined a hip hop group of five people called ‘Oral Punishment’. I played keyboards and it was fun because we only played with punk and metal bands. After that I was in a group called ‘The Apostles’. We opened for Tech N9ne and some bigger groups. About 2012 I started doing things on my own. Two years ago I did my first solo album under the name Pusha Breaks. Album was called ‘Mid-Morning Coffee Breaks’.”
The Early Years
Born in 1982, Brett grew up in the Detroit area and learned classical piano from ages 7-14.
“Learning classical piano was the foundation for my music experience. It was incredibly influential later on in learning how to make beats. In the band Oral Punishment, we were making the beats collectively. After we split up, I started making beats on my own. Started off with a Midi Controller and Fruity Loops software. Then moved up to better software, Propellerheads Reason. I started making beats for my brother Ian Fullerton who raps under the name Nameless Face. Together, Ian and I comprise a duo called Faceless Entertainment and we’re about to release a 7-song album. Our DJ, DJ Fr8-One (Joel Frates), has been a big part of it as well since Fr8-One and I also have our own duo called Beat Molesters.”
